As well as good fire prevention measures and practises, Data Centres also require specialised fire protection solutions consisting of a combination of detection and suppression. There are many variables influencing fire protection design depending on the particular room design and customer requirements, and E-TEC can provide you with the most effective solution for your application which at the same time results in the minimum amount of damage to your equipment or effect on surrounding environment.

Inert gas suppression is the most popular form of suppression in modern Data Centres due to its fast reaction and ability to get right into equipment and rapidly reduce the amount of oxygen available for combustion as well as absorbing heat, and without itself creating the damage water based systems can. Of course the overall effectiveness is dependent on early detection and so correctly selected and positioned heat and smoke sensors is crucial, and should always be a part of the kind of overall integrated solution that E-TEC can provide.
